    LOVE the panel! Going @ WDW for a week in 15 days! We're staying at POP, planning on visiting each park at least once, one park a day (no park hopper). How much time to/from POP does it usually take for a bus to/from any of the parks? Thanks!

    Hi Mindy!

    Thank you for the compliment.  All of us enjoy helping guests plan their magical Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Pop Century is my favorite Disney Value Resort.  I think you made a great choice.  On average, I would plan on 35 minutes from the time you show up at the bus stop in front of the main building at Pop Century until you are at the security bag check at a theme park.  Sometimes it can take a lot less and sometimes a little more.  On average, a bus should show up about every 20 minutes.  You can get lucky and show up a minute before the bus arrives, or you might be unlucky and just miss one.  Once you are the bus, it can take about 15 to 20 minutes depending on which park you are going to.

    If you are headed to another Walt Disney World Resort hotel, then I would plan on an hour.  That's because you have to first go to a theme park or to Downtown Disney and then transfer to a bus going to the hotel you want to go to.  There are no buses that go between hotels, with the exception, of course, of those hotels that share a bus.  Of course, if you're going to a Magic Kingdom Resort or an Epcot Deluxe Resort then there are options.  For example, to get to the Polynesian, you can take a bus from Pop Century to the Magic Kingdom and then take the monorail to the Polynesian.

    Pop Century has a great bus service because there is only one stop at Pop Century and they don't share bus service with any other hotels.    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
